An upholstery finish for seats, cushions, bed heads and stools, in which fabric circles or ready made tufts are secured on the face fabric with thread, through the layers of padding, in a regular decorative grid pattern.

Tufting is also a mechanical technique for making textiles, in particular carpets, whereby multi-needle sewing-machines push rows of pile yarn tufts through a ground that is backed with latex to secure them. The majority of all industrially made carpets are tufted due to cost and efficiency ; however, these are not quite as durable as machine-knotted carpets.
